We Tried It: Mamas & Papas Armadillo Stroller

Who tried it: Rennie Dyball, senior editor

Why she did it: My 5-month-old daughter was starting to get bigger so I needed to find a sturdy stroller that wasn’t too heavy. But how many baby rides have the best of both worlds?

The new Mamas & Papas Armadillo comes pretty close. A cross between a multi-featured, full-size stroller and a lightweight model, it’s a lovely little hybrid that boasts more pros than cons. And for its price point ($250), you get a lot of bang for your buck.

The company calls it their “Big Little Stroller,” and that’s an accurate way to sum it up. With four strollers currently residing in my apartment (and having test-driven many more), I’ve logged dozens of miles with my little babe in tow.

Here’s how I found the Armadillo to break down, feature by important feature.

To say Molly Sims is excited about the launch of Orbit Baby‘s new G3 stroller is an understatement.

“I love the whole system! My hubby and I have two bases — one in each car, so we can easily transfer the car seat from one to the other,” confessed the new mom, who glowed in a yellow Marchesa Voyage shift at the GILT-hosted event Wednesday night at the Refinery Hotel in New York.

“We can lift him out, lift him in and never have to take him out of the carseat,” added the actress, who welcomed son Brooks in June 2012.

So if you thought the original Orbit Baby was easy to customize, the G3 is even easier.

Not only does it feature a faster fold and easier seat base installation, it comes in an array of chic colorways.

Sienna Miller Strolls in Style with Bugaboo

11/12/2013 at 11:00 AM ET

Even before she became a mom to daughter Marlowe, style was always important to Sienna Miller. So it only makes sense that the well-known fashionista only strolls around with the chicest baby wheels she could find. In her case, it’s the Bugaboo Bee ($649) featuring the company’s new whimsical sun canopies designed by Andy Warhol.

On June 3, Miller and beau Tom Sturridge stepped out in N.Y.C. with the Cars version. And on Oct. 26, the actress and a friend (who looks a lot like David Beckham!) took Marlowe, 15 months, for a walk in London using the Flowers canopy. Both retail for $149 and were part of the first Bugaboo + Andy Warhol collection.

The latest line includes a super cute Happy Bugs footmuff ($175) and baby cocoon ($130) for those especially chilly days. Also launching is a kids app ($3) titled So Many Stars, which is an interactive adaptation of the book that will accompany the soon-to-be released So Many Stars canopy. Even cooler? All proceeds from the book and app will be donated to The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which distributes grants to support contemporary art.
